**FILE** Feminist punk group Pussy Riot members (from left) Yekaterina Samutsevich, Maria Alekhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova sit Aug. 17, 2012, in a glass cage at a courtroom in Moscow. The women, two of whom have young children, are charged with hooliganism connected to religious hatred but the case is widely seen as a warning that authorities will only tolerate opposition under tightly controlled conditions. The t-shirt worn by Tolokonnikova says, in Spanish, "They shall not pass," a slogan often used to express determination to defend a position against an enemy. (Associated Press)
